Research Interests:

Dr. Jaskolka leads the Cyber Security Evaluation and Assurance (CyberSEA) Research Lab. His research interests include, but are not limited to:

Cyber Security Evaluation and Assurance

  • approaches for identifying, analyzing, and mitigating security vulnerabilities
  • data-driven security evaluation and assurance methodologies
  • approaches for modular, incremental and compositional multi-concern assurance cases
  • developing objective and meaningful security metrics and measures

Engineering Secure and Trustworthy Software-Depdendent Systems:

  • methodologies for designing and implementing safe, secure, and reliable systems
  • development of software tools for automated analysis incorporated into the SDLC
  • applications in cyber-physical systems, critical infrastructures, internet of things (IoT), and others
  • architectures, design patterns, and middleware for building resilient and robust software-dependent systems
  • requirements engineering, especially assessing and managing trade-offs with security requirements
  • model-based development

Formal Methods:

  • specification, verification, and validation of software-dependent systems
  • development and use of algebraic approaches, methods, and techniques

Covert Communication Channels:

  • modelling, detecting, constructing, analyzing, and mitigating covert channels
  • methodologies for designing systems with robustness against covert channels
